Computer parts

Tonight I ordered the parts for my new desktop at home.  After using dual-core machines for development (my work pc, and my home laptop), I’ve grown tired of the slow desktop (2Ghz athlon).  So, with Jay’s assistance I’ve ended up with:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo (E6400)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 160GB SATA HD
  • GeForce 7900GS graphics card
  • ASUS SLI motherboard
  • 430W power supply

Components to be reused from current machine:

  • 80GB drive for more storage
  • DVD Burner
  • Lightscribe DVD Burner
  • SoundBlaster Audigy 4
  • pci video card (for my third monitor)
  • case

It’ll be running my second copy of Vista Business and should make for a hell of a development (and gaming for that matter) box.
